As well as beautiful scenery, a historic setting and fantastic seafood, Inveraray offers a wide range of perhaps unexpected activities.
Where else can you poke around a Duke’s castle in the morning and then, come the afternoon, do time in an 18th century gaol?
Today’s fantastic Big Deal is with the lovely Argyll Hotel in Inveraray – the ideal base for visiting not just Inveraray Castle and the town’s living museum jail but a whole host of other attractions as well.
Relaxing 2 night stay
The nuts and bolts of this Big Deal are as follows: two people can enjoy a two night stay in a standard twin or double at the Inveraray Hotel on a bed and full Scottish breakfast basis.
On the first night, a three course dinner for two in the Argyll Restaurant is included and you’ll also find a bottle of house wine in your room as a welcome gift.
Originally designed and built in the 18th century, the Argyll Hotel is one of the finest and most historic hotels on the west coast of Scotland.
Set on the shores of Loch Fyne and Shira, the hotel offers traditional quality accommodation with 36, comfortable, en-suite bedrooms. There is WiFi available in the hotel.
The Argyll Restaurant offers the opportunity to sample the best of Scotland’s larder with fresh, locally sourced produce featuring prominently on the delicious seasonal menus. Open log fires and peaty malts make the bar an attractive proposition.
See and do
The Argyll Hotel makes the perfect base from which to explore the Highlands and Islands. As well as the castle and jail mentioned above, popular visitor attractions include the Crarae Gardens and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar along with golf courses, enviable bird watching sites, fresh water and sea fishing plus a multitude of walking and hiking routes.
TripAdvisors many reviewers have been positive about the Argyll Hotel. At the time of writing, this is what the most recent reviewer had to say:
‘Great staff. Great food. Value for money break. Alright the rooms I have to concede were a bit tired but bedding was fresh and clean. The staff were magic and the food was plentiful and tasty. Overall well worth considering for a short break if you are in the area.’
